What is Clarity?
Clarity is a research-based online platform created by BrightBytes that measures the effectiveness of technology in schools and offers data-driven recommendations. BrightBytes is a learning analytics company that combines data with educational research to inform and measure improved learning outcomes.
Statistically significant data is collected twice a year through adaptive online surveys distributed to different stakeholders. Stakeholders include administrators, teachers and students. Surveying of parents is optional. Easy-to-read dashboards pinpoint strengths and gaps and link to actionable reports.
Through the data provided by the Clarity platform, districts may assess current conditions and review recommendations on how to enhance the digital learning environment at their schools based on the four different areas of the Clarity CASE framework - Classroom, Access, Skills, and Environment.
